some themes last time, particular identity and relationship and religion, and i'd just like to ask you since our last class, did anyone have an incident in life, not necessarily religious, but something that brought up this idea of this fundamental nature of identity and relationship? anybody at all have an experience they want to share on that? yeah, janet? >> i went to a high school graduation of mother mccauley catholic high school this past saturday. it was very much a ritual event, and lots of prayers being said. >> did you notice what was being said though - i'm curious - what kinds of things were being said, anything that came out that you might have flashed on? >> it seemed like they were talking about - reminiscing about the past, but mostly focusing on the future, and what have we learned, and then how will we use it in our future endeavors. >> exactly. and i went to a wedding and saw the same thing - people talking about, in vows, the relationship between two people. love, i mean, you could spend a lifetime and do worse than just contemplate love, what it means in tererms of
'm standing in front of the egypt museum here. we see that certainly the earliest times in that archc religion, finding some meaning, some sense of purpose out of life that was cold and brutal created such an extraordinarily beautiful set of statues and mythic drama. a couple of questions we can follow up here in terms of main class themes. one would be the pervasiveness of religion. in the face of insecurity and death, we think once again about identity - who are these people - and relationship. how do we deal with the world around us that seems bent on our creating our own demise? our sojourn through the wide, cool halls of the egyptian museum in cairo dramatically reinforces our three interrelated introductory class themes. rites of passage - in this case death - generate boundary questions - "where do i go when i die?" which is a pervasive human preoccupation from our most ancient civilizations up to the present. if nothing else, our mortality is the commonality that binds humanity together, and forces us to formulate religious answers to the sometimes overwhelming demands of our shared ex
at the religion process. and also, we just left talking about the seeker style of religion, and that's a great leaping off point for us for looking at religious experience, which is what we're going to do in this class. but first, i know you had a lot of questions and a lot of interesting comments, and i'm particularly interested in your feedback on the religion process, how you see it holding forth. you haven't had a lot of time to think about it, but any questions or comments you'd like to make? >> before self-consciousness in man, isn't there something more primal, something innate in man that reaches out to the other, even before he becomes self-conscious about anything around him? >> give me an example. that's a good point. >> well, say, an uneducated man, that he would see the sun, and then when we looks around, and he thinks, "that's something other than what's around here; that must be something importan" >> i'm glad you brought that up, because self-consciousness is a difficult term and it may mean different things to different people. i think i'm saying something more along the line

the next musical as religion. you do have a grasp. there were things up until the very last performance i was wondering if we were pushing it. they believed themselves. tavis: what did that experience a to you about the way, i try to find the right word, view, hold, about the the notion of religion, because it is the most sacred on the one hand and then among the most controversial topics in the nation. >> it is. i am spiritual by nature. tavis: yes, you are from one of those tribes. >> yes. it is in my dna. you have seen the show. yes, it appeals to an agnostic or an atheist sensibility, but it also truly delivers a message of spirituality, and it delivers on the promise of what religion can do, right? here are these people who absolutely have no reason to have faith. they are people at their lowest. and when these missionaries, and give them something to believe in, even if it is outside of the realm of normal, even if it is a little crazy and comes from a lie, which it does, inevitably, in our story, it still gives them something to grasp. it still gives them hope. that message, i thin

parents like that. very modern. very open-minded. unlike for some, there's no question of religion, of color of skin, or anything like that. people can be all beautiful. it depends on who they are, but it is not a question of color. for me, both of us were beautiful. and i loved color. color of the skin. tattoo on the skin, which is a kind of color. some blue colors that you add. and i wanted to show that. when i started, i remember that there were some beautiful girls. they're beautiful. but i felt like, ok, but there is also beauty. i have a girlfriend which was modeling for me that i met very early when i started that was from a french colony. she was beautiful and black and very inspiring, very nice. i say, yes, why not. for me, a difference was beautiful. they looked to me, and i wanted to show it. another kind of different was the fact that when i saw farida, i said, my god, she is incredible. i was very impressed by her beauty. very frightened even by her beauty. she was kind of a very arrogant imperial. and african and beauty with a special expression. not arrogant. but bea
it clear while we don't have jurisdiction over religion in the same way we don't over sexual orientation, what we're seeing in all of these -- and all of these are case by case, you can't just broad sweep the laws -- when students are bullied and harassed in this world because of religion, in most instances a lot of that is not about race or religion, it's because. perception that students that share certain religious traits also share certain ethnicities and that is discrimination and that falls under title 6. it is not just about enforcing the laws that make it clear how the laws apply. it is, though, as we said, you can't get at this through enforcement alone. this is a culture that tolerates this and in too many ways promotes it. as tom mentioned we have an unprecedented partnership not just between our agencies but agencies across the federal government that the president has convened to bring our best resources and minds to bear to do something about it. there is now a web site, stopbullying.gov where a tool kit is being developed and these kinds of best practices are being promo
disputes, war, religion and speaking more than one language. this book is my most personal book. my books of the most practical value to our daily lives, and as a shameless author i hope they can be my best purchase book. it's about what i've learned about spending a lot of my time in traditional tribal societies over the past 50 years. and it's about what friends and other scholars have learned from other tribal societies around the world. all of us here are accustomed to living in big industrial societies, in permanent housing with governments to make decision, with writing and books and internet. where most people live past age 60, when we regulate and counter strangers just as i am encountering you this evening, and where most of our food is grown by older people, we forget that every one of those things a rosary recently in history. humans have constituted a separate line of biological evolution, about 6 million years. but all of the things i just mentioned didn't exist anywhere in the world 11,000 years ago. they rose only within the last 11,000 years, and some of them such as the i
's war on terror became a global war on tribal islam" professor akbar ahmed, is a class of religion? >> guest: it is more complex. the concept of the clash of civilizations and others a simplistic. a and more than 10 years after 9/11 we should be aware of the conflicts where america is involved. i find many conflicts are rooted in the clash already taking place before and 11 was centered government and the triumph of the community on the border between states. without local history or culture it is impossible to impose simplistic notions but someone did waziristan or yemen is aghast at a clash of civilizations and. 90% had no idea what 9/11 was zero or of some of did not been. would have to be careful how we are analyzing and i maintain there is a crisis already was united states involved in a local conflict. >> host: ambassador to bases u.s. attacking their own personal try for their government? >> guest: you raised the third factor, with united states, the tribes now of the central government with a triangle of conflict that is the conflict said is often overlooked. would you incl

religion, but particularly islam, there's not always a clear understanding to what the first amendment guarantees, which is the right to teach about a religion but not proselytize about it. i think there's fear of associating with anyone associated with islam. there are events outside our control that creates more interest and unfortunately also makes people more afraid. one of the programs we are about to launch is putting all our content online so a teacher in north dakota where there are no muslim, potentially, no expert can come to her classroom, they can go to our web site and download the content and teach the things we are teaching. >> i think partnerships are the best way to overcome the limitations because we all have limitations. and sometimes it's just visibility. we actually have on our web site 50 short films and one of them is a muslim student from a school in fremont going to a school in arinda talking about what it's like going to school as a muslim in the united states and they are asking questions and you see we are all kids in school and we have more similaritie
defend today has been common to religions across time in many cultures and so we was don't want to ask the question of what common feature was motivating theology is rather than the other way round and it's not an argument from tradition. i'm not arguing because it's been this way it always should be. another thing is my argument can't be answered by appeals to the quality. we usually think that is the right response when we think of the marriage debate as a debate about whether to expand or restrict the pool of people eligible to marry. it is true about fake marriage is a good income should be available on an equal basis and you get right to same-sex marriage from there. i think this debate is about a prior question. it's a debate about what marriage is and why the state is involved in the first place, which of course has implication for which unions get recognized as marriages. my proposal is the main mission of marriage and support for same-sex marriage is mistaken and a strong about what marriage is. another is he can't explain much less controversial features that we all agree tha
not mean this to be in any way disrespectful toward religion-- but is it like a political convention? do you have people getting together feeling each other out? because one of you is going to be elected to this job. what's it like inside one of those conclaves? >> well, before the conclave actually start, there are a number of days when all the cardinals come together so that we can actually talk among ourselves, begin to get a better sense of one another. there are going to be 117 of us there with the right to vote. and just to get to know a little bit better personally one another, there will be four or five days of these meetings. but it-- >> schieffer: will you in any way-- could you be the nominee? >> no, that-- that enters into the world of fantasy. but when we get back into the real world, i think what will happen is a number of cardinals will begin to surface in the conversation among all of us as particularly appealing candidates. it's not like a political process, though. there aren't nominations, and you don't have people saying, "i vote for..." and "my favorite son is..." wh
. but we have to repackage them. >> reporter: and he repackages religion in a very unusual way. he's also a professional rapper, and preaches religion with rhyme. >> sometimes you have to do a little hip-hop, too. >> reporter: during a sermon? >> if need me. ♪ i'm trying to live it like christ ♪ >> reporter: as a rapper around the chicago area, the reverend is known as jay quest. >> what it really does is hopefully lead people into a greater understanding and awareness of themselves and their god. >> reporter: he's been preaching for ten years, he's been rapping professionally for about five years. they don't seem like they go together. but apparently they do. >> i don't think that i rap religion, though. i think that i rap about life, and i rap about the narratives of all of our experiences. i think that's the same thing that sermons are about. >> reporter: sermons and rap, the two have met. frank mathy, abc 7 news. >> whatever it takes. >> whatever gets the message out there is a good thing. so different people respond to different things. i like it. >> especially if you want to get
ritu santo . >> se piensa que todo sea espiritual . >> thomas, profesor de religion de la universidad de stanford dice que no tiene nada de espiritual ,la mayoría fueron nombrados por el papa benedicto xvi y juan pablo ii, garantiza son conservaodres y por eso es que la tendencia no es por diferencias sicologicas, teologicas, sino más bien territoriales . >> por ejemplo los italianos quieren regresar y tomar el papado porque no lo han tenido hace cuarenta años, algo así . >> y los italianos son poderosos, de 177 cardenales que eligiran al papa, 21 son italianos. >> que es el actual secretario, yo creo que él tiene la clave del proceso porque en los últimos cinco años han nombrado, ha transformado el colegio y ha nombrado principalmente obispos europeos . >> una cosa es segura, el nuevo papa ser aparecido al anterior . >> sin duda será conservador . >> algunos observadores creen que otro papa conservador es lo que menos neceista la iglesia en el siglo xxi, especialmente cuando ahora están desconectados de las decisiones del vaticano, la ddecision está en el colegio del vaticano
seeing these new attacks on the religion in the former soviet union. >> since 22 years ago, things changed again. the spiritual landscape, the political landscape, economy, is changing drastically in all of those countries. the countries that once were freed from the oppression of the soviet union. and in those countries and central asia, like uzbekistan, where radical islam is coming into more effective -- in many cases, oppression. >> wendy: how is the church responding? >> as we're talking today, wendy, churches are responding tremendously. under persecution. pastors are thrown to prisons, bibles are confiscated, and bibles are destroyed in uzbekistan, but we see the house churches are growing by every day. so the church is growing tremendously underground. >> wendy: is the increase in religious persecution coming from the russian government? >> you know, there is a constitution that is telling us there is separation between church and government. so based on all of this political development, or religious political developments, the evangelical church is very much in the minori
the campaign cling to their guns and religion. >> oddly enough opposite of 40 years ago. you listen to richard nixon on secret tapes he's saying things i'm for gun control and the way i will do it, scare all of the white voters about the black panthers. chris: and it worked. safe streets act. >> i think there's a mismatch with how people actually live and how people actually want to think about the country. if you look at the border for instance, look at brooklyn and what happened during hurricane sandy, there wasn't any rash of looting and rash of stealing. i don't know if this is going to work. wayne lapierre. chris: i have not seen a republican stand up and say i disagree with wayne lapierre in the media. >> there are two issues here. we will not get a sweeping gun control bill because politics are such we're not. but the question of can wayne lapierre help republicans build a big collision across issues. there i agree with mia i don't that i will happen. i think that's older america. really -- chris: you're smart but could it be short road strategy? everyone know there's a small window bec

could be a religion, you'd get more out of westerns than any other genre. (narrator) the western has come to symbolize american cinema, its images instantly recognizable the world over. many of our foremost directors, writers and actors have been drawn to its elemental moral themes and epic scale; its frontier characters -- fools, charlatans, outlaws and heroes -- confronting the grand themes of life and death on stage, the stark background of america's west. it's a western because of the story form, because of the traditional and conventional aspects of it. isolation. one man up against it, resolving it by violence... (john sturges) nobody can help him. they're good versus evil truth, or morality tales. (gunfire) (elmore leonard) i thought westerns would be easier to write. you're writing about a time the reader hasn't experienced. places that the reader hasn't been. you make up a town, a one-street town, with the board-front buildings down both sides. perhaps a board sidewalk; and that was easy to describe. there's something about the attire.

"lawdy miss clawdy" song was already out. you were on the charts, and you ended up being drafted. >> that is right. tavis: so you went to fight. >> why they took me, before i went in, no family was entitled to have more than four men from the same family. tavis: right. >> at that time i
